Although I am entitled to two free checked bags, I choose to check one and have a regulation size carry-on. The Silhouette 12 29" is great for the check-through. Huge is good! I was advised to get a bag that did NOT open in the center because those bags require more space to be fully opened. Again, the S12 line fulfills that goal. Unless I need something in the lid of the S12, I can prop it against a wall.
As for the zipper pulls, I use 2 TSA locks per bag. One connects the pulls from the main compartment. I connect the pulls from the outside compartments with another lock which keeps them from flapping around and from unzipping. I have never lost a zipper pull.
I am headed around the world in April, 2013 and fully expect that these bags will be quite satisfactory. Samsonite has never failed me before!
